2013 2LT Camaro Car Cover Recommendations

Can anyone recommend a car cover brand and where you got it, looking for a basic cover too keep the dust etc off the Camaro while in the garage with some scratch protection.

Doesn't need to be a 100% total waterproof per they can be heavy / cumbersome to put on.

Thanks in advance...

I bought a cover from Sam's Club for $50 shipped and just got it today and haven't even unpacked it. It imply's it is for outside or inside although I will only use it for inside the garage. The outside of the box says make sure car is dry before applying cover, duh!. It appears to have many holes in the semi-plastic fabric for breath-ability. Also it says it is not guaranteed to keep moisture off the car if parked outside. Again I purchased it to keep the dust of of it in the garage and it does come with a carrying case also. Also it has a zippered drivers door access when the cover is installed. Send me a PM in a few weeks and I will let you know how I like it. It does have elastic it appears around the bottom for a good fit. I bought the mid size. It also comes with a rope to tie to several grommets from the left to right front and rear (it appears) to tie it down in a windy condition outside. Again I don't think I would want to use it outside although it may be fine. The price is unbeatable @ $50 shipped, I figured it was worth the money to give it a try.

Thanks Ozzy I was kind of looking for a cover that has mirrior pockets with a little better fit, but it still might work - If you get a chance in the next couple of days to put it on i would like to see some pix. I also checked out Costco and they have Coverking XtremeWeave Custom Fit Car Cover but it doesnt list a price.:bangdesk:

Anyone else have any suggestions?

I bought a covercraft dustop, IMO best cover ever. When I took it out last year there was no dust on my car but I could clearly see dust on the car next to mine.
